it seems my self-built campervan, may never pass a German MOT (TUV) since some parts are British and might have been made by people who were not paying attention.
The German word for adjustable spanner is ENGLANDER. I still haven’t worked out if this is intended as a slur..
Update: apparently it is so named because in the old days it was the only tool available for use on imperial nuts and bolts. Well there you go -paranoia unnecessary.
